Gothic Building is Home Sweet Home for the North West’s Bridal Best
The Wedding House Relaunch Party, Liverpool City Centre –7th & 8th September 5.30pm-7.30pm
Stepping inside Liverpool’s iconic gothic building the Wedding House, it’s plain to see how the architectural Gothic Revival inspired a 19th century genre of romantic poetry in the literary world. And within the wedding world, the relaunch of the Wedding House is stirring many a romantic too. From its original detailed Victorian tiled floor to the inviting rich red staircase, this beautiful Grade II listed building is a sanctuary for any discerning bride and groom-to-be. But it’s not just for couples in love. Now home sweet home to over thirty elite suppliers, the Wedding House has four floors of top design inspiration and personal style advice to help plan any special occasion.
The Wedding House is the brainchild of husband and wife proprietors Neil and Jennifer Shaw of Knutsford. Neil purchased the building eight years ago to house his Liverpool Groom store. He approached several other businesses at a Liverpool Echo wedding show and invited them to join, several of who are still there now. In 2011, Jennifer, a business improvement consultant working predominantly for global PLCs, took a sabbatical to help out in the family business.
Jennifer says “I started by approaching some of the best wedding and special occasion related businesses within the North West; my vision to bring in some younger, funkier and more bang on trend businesses who would widen the appeal to any stylish customer looking for something a little bit different for their special occasion”.
Nestled in the heart of the city centre, the Wedding House is re-launching in September, and like any blushing bride-to-be, is now at her most beautiful. Open seven days a week, the cream of the wedding crop exclusively provide an all year round wedding show experience to guide brides through the exciting planning process. A wedding treat retreat!
“We are still very much aimed at the wedding market, however, I equally see it as a destination of choice for a fashionista visiting for that special outfit to make them stand out from the crowd at the races or something to give their party the WOW factor, whatever the occasion”
